This is the second half of the story. As I pointed out in my review of the first half, it is a graphic novel collection of several issues of a limited comic series. It has pictures and you will need the first part before reading this part.
The crossover isn't perfect, but each franchise does get to show off itself at times. I don't think it would be possible to completely mesh to such well-known franchises without a seam or two showing somewhere.
The artwork is very good at times. Other times, some of the characters look either blurry or like they didn't receive as much attention to detail. It appears the artists used photos as references when they could. The character of Guinan never quite seems to capture Whoopi Goldberg.
I gladly added this to my Star Trek crossover collection. Star has now crossed paths with the League of Super Heroes and the X-Men as well. (The X-Men crossover was a novel actually. Wolverine and Worf used the holodeck to fight several X-Men foes including Saber tooth and the Blob.)
I really liked that each side played out like a TREK and a WHO episode until the TARDIS arrives on the Enterprise. After that it seemed more to follow a WHO episode, but with elements of TNG. The Doctor's trip back to Wolf 359 was an highlight for me. That has always been such a polarizing event to the Federation. But hearing the Doctor call it a "fixed point in time" was a nice touch.
All in all excellent fan service will all the elements of TREK and WHO that fans know and love! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!
The "retro" segment was the highlight of it, both art-wise and concept-wise, in which Tom Baker's Doctor and Captain Kirk work together to stop the Cybermen from Classic Who.
